      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

AAI Equipment Shop BURGLARIZED!

Recommended Posts

Early Tuesday morning, March 13, 2012, around 4am, our Equipment Shop in Fairhaven was burglarized by 1 or 2 people, likely males, and likely climbers...

 

Items that were definitely taken were:

 

Splitboard Snowboard:

Voile 171 Mojo RX, with Voile Lightrail bindings. These have "AAI" etched onto the top of the boards, along with a round AAI sticker near the tail. (Part of our rental fleet) Whitish and brown, with a nature/tree/winter theme. Lightrail's have the orange quick release strap, so very easy to notice. The bindings also have "AAI" etched in them.

 

Packs:

-Mountain Gear BMG 105, size Small (black and white)

-CiloGear Worksack 75L, size Small (black and yellow)

 

Ice axes:

-Black Diamond Raven Pros, many lengths

-Petzl Snow Walker many lengths

-Petzl Sum'Tec Ice Tool (w/adze) 59 cm

-Petzl Sum'Tec Ice Tool (adze and hammer) 52 cm

 

Ice Screws:

Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screws, 22 cm

 

Clothing:

Outdoor Research Crocodiles, red and black, size Medium and Large

Outdoor Research Revel Jackets, orange, Medium and Large

 

Gloves:

Outdoor Research Alti Gloves, medium

Outdoor Research High Camp gloves, large and XL

 

Footwear:

Kayland Apex Rock mountaineering boots, men's 11.5 (likely one of the thieve's sizes, as he appeared to have taken the time to find his size and style he wanted)

Intuition Denali heat-moldable liners for plastic/double boots, men's 10 (Stores that offer heat molding, please keep an eye out for boot fitting requests!)

 

Snowshoes:

MSR Lightning Ascent, black, 30 inches

 

Miscellaneous:

JetBoil Sol Ti stove (Titanium)

MSR windscreens

 

There may be more, but that is what we've come up with so far.

 

 

The Bellingham Police Report number is:

 

12B 08 776

 

Thanks a ton for looking out for these items for us! Spread the word, too! We're working on an award that leads to arrest and conviction!

Man that sucks...I'm curious why you think it was climbers and not your average meth junkie? Was it that they "selected" the gear so it seems like they were just outfitting themselves?

 

So I take it you'd be looking for someone who just happened to have a bunch of new sweet gear rather than surfing craigslist for a sale...

Or maybe a new climbing school?

 

Sounds like a shit pile of axes were stolen.
